Ancient scholar Charaka has included it in the category of jwarahara (that which relieves fever) and dāhashāmaka (that which mitigates burning sensation), due to its remarkable ability to lower the body temperature. It balances all three doshas. Sariva is also helpful in relieving skin diseases and itching. It is a potent antioxidant that helps to flush out toxins from the body.
